Heartfelt request for orphanage and disabled children and families affected by earthquake in Sindhupalchowk and Dolkha, Nepal The number of confirmed dead from the Great Earthquake that struck the country on April 25 has been raised to 7,611, Home Ministry (May 05, 2015). The number of people injured in the quake has reached 14,556. A total of 191,058 houses belonging to the people have been leveled to surface and 175,162 are partially damaged. The numbers will continue to increase as information becomes available from a large number of affected districts. Out of 10 the worst hit districts, this donation will be utilised for relief and recovery for a total of 150 orphanage and 450 disabled children and families in Sindhupalchowk and Dolkha districts. These orphanage and disabled families have lost everything their homes, their parents, and foods. The relief items are still not reaching in the most remote mountainous region. The orphanage and disabled children and families are sleeping outdoors without any protection from the cold nighttime temperatures and heavy rainfall. These target groups remain vulnerable to disease from the cold and unsanitary conditions they are living in. Therefore, an urgent help for these orphanage and disabled children and families will be needed. Otherwise, illness will be becoming a problem in the quake-affected district. The donation will be responding for short-term that includes critically needed safety food, shelter, medicines for treatment, wheel chair, clothing, water purification tablets, nutrition supplements for the orphanage and disabled children and families and also the donated resources will be utilised for socio-psycho counselling about awareness on earthquake and orientation. Once this short-term responding phase completes afterwards next donation will be sought for long-term emergency response that includes sustainable livelihoods program for economic development, vocational skills and reconstruction of damaged and destroyed house for shelter. Our volunteers are already on the ground in earthquake affected communities in Nepal, dedicated to fighting for human rights and against poverty, is raising money to distribute to aid organizations in the hardest-hit areas of Nepal. These volunteers are capable to carry out these reliefs and rescue operation in the most affected district to respond quickly, efficiently and with compassion. Donations will go directly to helping the target groups providing essential items to those who have lost everything. This donation may be positive impacted on the lives of orphanage and disabled children and families that build stronger disaster-response capacity. Global Giving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers. Regards, Laxmi N Prasad, PhD Program Director, MRC Nepal
